CAMDEN – State investigators have identified the man whose body was found off Sherman Point as Jay St. Peter of Caribou.
The body of the 28-year-old man was spotted Wednesday afternoon by residents near the beach, said Maine Public Safety Department spokesman Stephen McCausland.
St. Peter had probably been dead for a few weeks.
McCausland said investigators hope that the release of the man’s identity will prompt friends or acquaintances to come forward with details about why St. Peter was in Camden.
The state Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta said Friday it needed to perform more tests to determine the cause of death.
